Originally established by the Government of Kerala as an advanced centre for medical specialties, Sree Chitra Tirunal Institute for Medical Sciences and Technology (SCTIMST) metamorphosed into an Institute of National Importance with the status of a University in 1980 under the Department of Science and Technology, Govt. of India by an Act of Parliament (Act 52 of 1980). The joint culture of medicine and technology that the Institute pioneered more than three decades ago has come of age and gained unprecedented acceptance in India. Imbued with an inclination to venture into less-trodden domains, the Institute focuses on patient care of high quality, technology development of industrial significance and health research studies of social relevance. The emphasis is on development of facilities less readily available elsewhere in the country such as interventional radiology, cardiac electrophysiology, presurgical evaluation and surgery for epilepsy, microsurgery and deep brain stimulation for movement disorders, new biomedical devices and products, evaluation of medical devices to global specifications, new academic programmes and global public health networks.
The Institute has three wings - the Hospital, Biomedical Technology Wing and the Achutha Menon Centre for Health Science Studies. Excellent research and teaching facilities are available at these centres. This uniquely poised Institute has a dedicated team of clinicians, scientists and engineers devoted to high quality biomedical research and developing technologies in health care with emphasis on cardiovascular and neurological diseases.
The Canada—India Institutional Cooperation Project (CIICP) initiated in 1993 was the genesis of Centre for Continuing Education Kerala (CCEK). CIICP was a project involving 13 polytechnics in the southern states of Kerala, Karnataka and Tamil Nadu and 10 colleges in Canada. When the project period ended the Government of Kerala decided to continue the project on its own. Accordingly, an autonomous body with the name ‘Centre for Continuing Education Kerala’ was established in 1998 under the Department of Higher Education, Government of Kerala.
Kerala School of Mathematics (KSoM), an institution meant for advanced learning and research in Mathematics, is a joint venture of Kerala State Council for Science, Technology and Environment (KSCSTE), Government of Kerala and Department of Atomic Energy (DAE), Government of India. It is built in the traditional Kerala style architecture and is located in a picturesque setting surrounded by serene hillocks and lavish greenery. It is at a distance of about 15 km. from the seaside city Kozhikode in Malabar region of Kerala, India.
The seed for the establishment and growth of TANUVAS was sown as early as 1876, when the Madras Veterinary College was started as an Agricultural School in Chennai to offer diploma and certificate course in the field of veterinary and animal sciences. The institute attained the status of a college in the year 1903 (01.10.1903), when it started functioning at Dobbin Hall, Chennai and admitted 20 students for a three-year diploma course called GMVC (Graduate of Madras Veterinary College). Based on the recommendation of the Royal Commission on Agriculture, the college was upgraded to impart degree in veterinary science.
